TennisSection previews the 2021 Wimbledon Championships as Barbora Krejcikova (14) meets Andrea Petkovic in the Round of 64 on Thursday, July 1st 2021.
Will Andrea Petkovic be able to cause the big upset here so she can make her way to the Round of 32? Will Barbora Krejcikova continue to perform strongly in the Singles draw at Grand Slams after her amazing run at the French Open where she won the title? This will be an interesting encounter, but only one will make their way to the Round of 32 of the 2021 Wimbledon Championships. Who will it be?
Andrea Petkovic came through a tight straight sets win against Jasmine Paolini although the scoreline does not say so. The match was very tense with both players breaking a few times, but because of Jasmine Paolini’s lack of height, her serve was not strong enough to get herself on top of her rallies. Petkovic was able to use this more to her advantage as she was able to feel free on her own service games and then be confident in her return games. However, Andrea now meets a much tougher and in form opponent in Barbora Krejcikova. Can the German cause the big upset early here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships?
Barbora Krejcikova won her opening round match against Clara Tauson in easy straight sets fashion, beating her 6-3/6-2. It is clear that Barbora Krejcikova does not want to waste any unnecessary time on court as she looks to continue her fairly tale month at Grand Slams. Barbora Krejcikova is very hard to beat as she has been able to raise her level in Singles by using her experience in Doubles. Barbora Krejcikova will come out here knowing that she cannot take any opponent too easily and she does not want to waste any time on court because she is playing both Singles and Doubles here at the 2021 Wimbledon Champiobships. Can Barbora get a strong win over Andrea Petkovic under her belt?
Barbora Krejcikova and Andrea Petkovic have never met before, with this being their first meeting. Andrea Petkovic did play well in her opening round match, but she also had an easy opponent on grass. Now that she meets Barbora Krejcikova, I don’t see her standing a chance here. Barbora is both good when she serves and returns, and she will put pressure on Andrea right from the start. Andrea will have to hope that Barbora lets her guard down, however, with her stacked schedule here at the 2021 Wimbledon Championships, Barbora will not want to waste any time in her way to the Round of 32.
